TESTIMONIALS

I absolutely love the Saltrooms – Bondi Junction.  It’s time away from the busy world outside where I can relax and wind down, read a good book or have a sleep.  What I’ve noticed the most is how much more energy I have.  I suffer from fatigue and the Saltrooms have really helped my energy levels.  I would recommend it to everyone.

We have tried so many creams for my son’s psoriasis and they never completely clear the patches like Kartalin Cream does.  It is truly amazing!  I recommended it to a friend who also has psoriasis and he says it is the only cream that has worked for him!!

As a long time sufferer from sinusitis I had tried many treatments without success to find relief from constant violent sneezing and nose blowing which left me debilitated. Friends recommended the Salt Therapy Clinic at Bondi Junction and after only a few visits my sneezing and nose blowing had subsided, I was waking in the morning with a clear head and able to breathe through my nose, my headaches had diminished and energy increased and I have not suffered a severe attack of sinusitis since commencing the treatment. Great results simply from lying back in a comfortable armchair and snoozing through the session. What’s not to like!

I’ve only been 3 times to the saltrooms and I must say it is excellent for our well being. The staff are excellent!
Its a stress free environment, which I found made my respiratory during my flu more tolerable to sleep.
I also purchased the CAMeLk and this is extraordinary. For years I’ve been trying to find a lotion for my skin that is very dry and this cream is just awesome! It hydrates the skin and on my hands. I noticed the my wrinkles from the dry skin just disappear.. after washing the hands, the moisture is still there and it doesn’t have an oily residual.
I will definitely return to the salt rooms and if I had the money, I’d buy this cream but the truck load!

Hi Salt Rooms,
I have been suffering from psoriasis for as long as I can remember and tried various preparations – from ordinary moisturising lotions to over-the-counter and dermatologist-prescribed (often very expensive!) ointments. A couple of weeks ago I purchased the new product “Kartalin” and now I see and feel a great change in my condition. I applied as directed and noticed a big relief in the redness and itchiness after 4-5 days. I’m continuing with the application and enjoying the break from psoriasis.

Dear Saltrooms,
We have been coming to the salt rooms for 6 sessions for our three year old son who we have been told is allergic to the colder weather.
Both running and walking causes him to cough to the extreme of vomiting.
After the sessions we have noticed a massive improvement and cough is almost completely gone. It is a very relaxing environment and we all enjoy going to the rooms.
We would highly recommend the rooms and we will continue to go.

I have struggled with raspiratory issues for years. I have seen every possible doctor imaginable and was tested for things like asthma, a heart condition, had multiple xrays and so on and nothing was ever found. At the end i was misdiagnosed with severe asthma but the treatment made no difference to me at all. I saw the Salt Rooms story on television and decided to give it a go as well. I thought i tried everything else so why not this as well.
I have had ten treatments so far and i can’t believe the difference it has made. I not only feel and more importantly breathe better but i have become a happier person as i can go out more and do more things with my family. I don’r remember the last time i had a proper nights sleep before i started this treatment but now that’s not a problem anymore.
This really has helped me to feel so much better. My raspiratory issues have almost completely disappeared and i couldn’t be more grateful.
Thank you to everyone at Salt Rooms.

Dear Avi and everyone at the Bondi Saltroom,
As you know our daughter Bowie is working to over come significant lung damage due to aspiration pneumonia and flu infections. As her little lungs continue to develop it is vital for us to protect them to the best of our ability. In our family research we learned about the benefits of Saltroom therapy and started to bring Bowie as regularly as possible. While specific clinical benefits are impossible to document at this time we have seen benefits for Bowie that have improved her quality of life exponentially. The primary benefit for us is decreased lung infections. Any infections easily increase Bowie’s dependance on supplementary oxygen and with her compromised immune system she can take a long time to recover. Seeing a decrease in those infections not only benefits her by keeping healthy it also assists us in decreasing the amounts of oxygen she requires – a very important goal for her recovery.

As time is never on our side we are also very grateful that you allow us to utilise the Saltroom facility for Bowie’s occupational therapy and schooling. The room is very conducive for her learning and our therapists always comment on how – without the usual distractions of other locations – much better she concentrates for longer periods of time. Everyone has been very impressed.
The Saltroom has become a member of an important team for our little girl and we look forward to seeing great progress as we attend more often. We also hope that other families dealing with infection and other respiratory complications can get these same benefits from the Saltroom…and more.
Yours truly,
The Toth-Lewis family

Rocco Mammone

My father Rocco is 84 years old and has always being active working in his vegi garden. Four years ago he was diagnosed with emphysema and over the next 4 years his condition got worse. Even though he did everything that the doctors suggested, we could see that his breathing was getting harder, he had trouble sleeping, was not eating, lost most of his strength. He mostly sat and panicked. Then we heard of Salt Therapy and decided to give it a try. My father saw a difference from the very fist visit. Gradually he has been able to do the things that he hasn’t been able to do for a very long time. He is back in his vegi garden, he sleeps better, eats better and generally can be a part of every day life again. He visits once a week and will continue to do so; He strongly recommends this therapy, as it has given him a second chance at a normal life.

James Spilsbury

Having stopped smoking in 1997, after smoking 20-30 cigarettes for 40 years, I was diagnosed with COPD (Chronic Obstractive Pulmonary Disease).
As a healthy sceptic of most alternative treatments, I was pleasantly surprised at how relaxing I found my treatment at the salt rooms.I had no expectation that I would feel a real difference physically. However, after 3 months of visits ranging between 2 and 3 times a week,I can now expectorate with a minimum of coughing which is the opposite of what I had been suffering for the last 18 months.
The side benefit of no longer coughing violently for up to 2-3 mins, without being able to expectorate the congestion, means that I am no longer suffer from recurring chest pains. This is confirmed by my physio-therapist who recently commented that my chest muscles are now more relaxed.
Attending the salt room on a regular basis is now part of my overall COPD health regimen. Only time will tell what other benefits may arise.

Poppy Ktenas

My daughter Stella experienced an improvement in her health during her 8 visits to the Salt Rooms in Bondi Junction and we do intend to continue.
Stella suffers from asthma and allergies, during her time in therapy she did not need to use her preventative medications which was great. There was a decrease in nasal congestion and mucous build up and no nose bleeds at all which she usually experienced during spring time. So we are extremely pleased with the Salt Rooms and the benefits Stella has experienced with her health, also I forgot to mention she did not have any outbreak of eczema which she usually did have around spring as well. We thank you for all your help have a great New Year and we will see you in January 2011.

Melita Cole & Janice McDonald

Dear Avi
Jan and I wanted to let you know how delighted we are with the improvement in our breathing and coughs since we have been coming to your Salt Rooms.
After just six visits my cough is so much better, I don’t cough nearly as often and the attacks don’t last as long. My breathing is easier and I feel so good.
As I explaned to you, I have tried everything the Doctors could suggest and also quite a few alternative methods, all to no avail, so to get relief so quicly and easily is amazing.
Jan says her breathing is also much better and her sinuses clearer. Like me she has had these problems for a long time and conventional medicine has not helped her either.
We enjoy our visits to the Salt Rooms, the atmosphere is very relaxing and comfortable and you and your colleagues friendly and welcoming.
We wish you continued success and hope one day you will open a Salt Room in Newcastle.

Jason Barnes

Being a chronic sufferer of sinusitis I was getting infection after infection after numerous courses of antibiotics, nasal sprays and finally surgery all with really no positive effect, I decided to try saltroom therapy which has proven to be a very good decision.
Within my first 8 visits not only am breathing and sleeping better my energy level has increased out of sight with no infection reoccurring. Even though I have to travel around 3 hours each way for my visits, it is a trip definitely well worth it.
Thank You Saltrooms

I take my 20 month old boy to the Salt Rooms to help with his croup. I have found that after 8 sessions he really is breathing and sleeping easier. The salt rooms help respiratory problems such as asthma, croup, CF etc

Tom Verzar

On my recent trip to Los Angeles an amazing thing happened. After my arrival mid afternoon, I arranged to meet up with some friends later that evening, something which I have never done before, as I usually get in very tired and suffer from jet lag for up to 10 days. This time I was able to more than keep up with my friends and enjoy the evening.
Prior to leaving for LA, I attended a few sessions in your Salt Room. As a result of that, I got over my jet lag amazingly enough after only two nights sleep. This was upon my return to Sydney, after my 3 week trip to LA. Generally I slept better, while I was away and had no allergies due to the change of season from winter to summer.
I would highly recommend to anyone intending to travel, to visit the Salt Room about 4-6 times, as it will assist in reducing the effect of jet lag and any accompanying hayfever or allergies.

Doctor AF, Sydney

I suffer from recurrent respiratory symptoms and chest infections due to an underlying lung condition. As a medical practitioner, I have been disappointed with the limitations of modern medical technology and treatments in relation to my condition. I was prepared to try any other means of maintaining optimal health and boosting my immune system.

I had heard about the health benefits of negative ion environment and its application in various health-oriented facilities overseas. Hence, when I learnt about Salt Rooms being established in Sydney I was very keen to have a trial.

There is a sense of tranquillity as one walks into the salt therapy room. The floor is covered with salt and reminds me of white sandy beaches, the air is warm and moist. Once I make myself comfortable on the reclining chair, the salt particles are released into the room with the accompanying music. Soon I notice that it is easier to breathe and I get the urge to take deeper breaths. It is calming for the mind and I believe that there are health benefits beyond the respiratory system. It is not just about the inhalation of salt particles, but the whole therapeutic experience. It is much better than being attached to a saline nebuliser from pharmacy. After each session I always feel much better – breathing easily, calm and relaxed, yet refreshed and alert.

During the initial course of salt therapy attending three sessions a week I felt very well despite a busy work schedule and little time to myself. After a business trip to Melbourne I came back with a cold. I was feeling rather unwell with a mild headache, a blocked nose and a tight chest but attended my booked session at the Salt Rooms. I was pleasantly surprised at how well I felt after an hour. I had no difficulty breathing and it felt like my lungs had opened up. I felt energised and was able to spend the rest of the day being active. I managed to get over the cold within two days. In the past it would take me much longer and sometimes I would end up with a chest infection requiring antibiotics. I have not had to take a course of antibiotics this winter.

For me, the sessions at the Salt Rooms are now an integral part of maintaining my wellbeing in addition to the regular exercise, healthy diet and other approaches in life I take to ensure that my lung condition does not worsen. I recommend a trial at the Salt Rooms to anyone who wishes to improve their health, and especially to those suffering from respiratory ailments.

Nicole Atencio – Asthmatic

The experience at Salt Rooms Australia resulted as nothing less than extremely worthwhile. I decided to try salt therapy as an alternative to the countless steroid inhalers I have used for my erratic and handicapping asthma. After the first treatment not only did my breathing feel less restricted, but my skin smoother and my sense of smell was very heightened for several hours. These were effects after only my first treatment! After several treatments over the span of two weeks, these effects began to last days. After a full course of fourteen treatments over a few weeks, I now sleep more soundly from improved breathing and I do not wake up with a sore chest from struggling to breath throughout the night.

This treatment is completely non invasive and its benefits can go well beyond treating the symptoms that you originally begin the therapy for. In addition to salt therapy’s multi-symptom relief, it does not have negative side effects like most conventional prescriptions and treatments that one endures to gain the remedy effects. Anyone can benefit from salt’s healing properties harnessed in Salt Rooms Australia’s well crafted environment, and, therefore, those individuals with illnesses can find even greater relief and curing. I hope you benefit from your salt room experience as I did mine.
